    My XS1 has been in storage for 2 years but I decided to take it out and try it once again.  On a walk in the World Birding Center, in Bentsen Palms State Park TX, USA.  I was one again reminded ...

  • So I switched from the X-S1 to Pentax K-3ii.  In actual use, both cameras take excellent pictures subject to the limitations of the camera.  99% of the picture quality comes from the one holding ...
  • None whatsoever.  Its still in the box.  I may take it out to play at some point, but I doubt it.  I made the transition from film to digital 20 years ago, I think I'm now transitioning to ...
  • Created discussion thread Saying goodbye to my X-S1
    My X-S1 is one of my favorite cameras (along with the Sony R1).  But time rolls on, and since I like to geotag all my images I ended up using a Pentax K-3ii as it has GPS builtin. The X-S1 has ...
  • Created for sale thread Fuji XS-1 in perfect condition
    Loved the XS-1 when it first came out, but it had problems.  So I ended up buying 3 over time, and the last one was perfect.  Serial number is in the 33A range, so one of the later ones.  No orbs ...

  • Created for sale thread Classic Fuji gear
    I have been an active Fuji user and fan, but have finally decided to change to more modern gear. So I’m selling the gear listed below, all with original boxes and accessories. Everything works, ...
  • These were shot in JPG mode.  Not only that, but to many on this forum sacrilegious, the camera was in full auto mode.   This is my usual setting when I do travel photography. I have found in ...
  • Created discussion thread XF1 in the mountains
    Although I have a decent set of different cameras to choose from, my X30 has been my most used camera on photo vacations.  Today I remembered my XF1 and decided to take it for a hike.  It still ...

  • Really agree.  I missed the wider aperture several times.  It would be the only reason I would take my Pentax K3ii on my next trip; I have a 15mm (= 21.5mm in 35 format) lens that is small and ...
  • I own or have owned a large variety of camera gear, but the little X30 continues to impress. I have mine equipped with a Lensmate Thumb grip, and handling is just great. I just had a cruise to the ...

  • Created discussion thread Frustrated with iPad and iOS
    For years I have been using Aperture, then Capture One on Mac and Windows. Decided to try my new iPad Pro on a trip. So I tried Apples own Photos, Google Photos, Snapseed, Keenai and Affinity and ...
